Penguin Sweater Project

These senior citizens are well accustomed to knitting blankets and clothes for children, but now the residents and staff at Princes Court Homes in Australia have taken to providing knitted sweaters – complete with flipper holes – for some feathered friends in need.

Provided with a pattern by Knit for Nature, residents and staff have knitted 35 little penguin jumpers to be donated to Phillip Island Nature Parks for penguins affected by oil spills. Princes Court Homes nursing care director Sandy Wellington said she initially saw the project on Facebook and, despite her disbelief that the project existed, pursued it as a craft idea for residents.

Sounds like a win – win to the Penguin Post for the residents and the penguins.
